John Marshall Highway in Gainesville and Haymarket, Virginia is named for a great and legendary Virginian, John Marshall.  Having snapped this photo of a statue in his honor while perusing Warrenton, Virginia's Courthouse, I decided to learn more about the man behind the name. John Marshall was born on September 24, 1755 in Germantown, Virginia (located in what is now Fauquier County.)  His first note in history was serving under George Washington in the American Revolutionary Wary.  From there, as Virginia formed its State Government, Marshall was involved.  He was elected as a delegate, serving from 1782-1789, and again from 1795-1796.  During his tenure, he was involved in ratifying the Constitution of the United States on behalf of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Marshall was elected ...

Town and County Shoes, in Gainesville, VA opened it's doors 4 years ago... The brain child of Debra  Corrmier-Dunn, who's idea it was to open a "one stop shop" for women looking for fashion, shoes and accessories. At Town and Country Shoes customers can expect a high level of personalized customer service.  They have shoes that are specifically designed for the individual customer... Physicians even refer patients who have special design needs.  If you have foot wear needs that you can't find in a conventional shoe store go to www.TownandCountryShoes.com

Are Short Sales Getting Easier? Maybe it is just me, but this past week I have had to deal with three banks and a housing authority on three short sale listings we are currently working.  I was amazed in the changes that have started taking place within the loss mitigation departments.  The individuals on the other end were actually courteous and helpful! One of the banks even assigned a negotiator after we simply sent in our authorization form - and then sent me their name, direct phone line, and email address!  WOW - hopefully that is a sign of things to come...but we all know the truth...the answers all lie in the investor. Short Sales are the market future, I have blogged about this before, because even if the defaults stop, people will still need to move in and out of our area.  I ...

Short Sale Agents In Virginia - What Matters Most In A Short Sale? Facing a foreclosure or move involving a home that is upside down is nothing to take lightly.  Yet it has continued to amaze me the amount of listings that have been placed on the market with no real chance of closing.  The sellers have no idea that whom they have trusted their Short Sale with is hurting their chances of success and avoiding foreclosure. When our team decided to learn about the proper procedures in a Short Sale, we knew the daunting task that laid before us.  Some agents were learning on the fly, and those who were committed continued to learn the proper way to list and sell Short Sales even though they had times of uncertainty.  Our path was a little different - we created a system first to increase our...

I wanted to address the common misconception of who qualifies for a short sale.  Many homeowners think that a short sale is about people going into foreclosure or buying homes that they could not handle - that is very far from the truth.  In fact, most people in a short sale situation now are the ones who could handle the storm, but the individuals who defaulted dragged the values down so low that the rest of us are left to clean up the damage.  A short sale is simply a sale in which the mortgage outstanding is higher than the sales price on the home.  A successful short sale must include these three key ingredients: 1. Financial Hardship - This is very broad and can be the result of many things.  Our website has a list of all the acceptable forms of hardship, but the most common are jo...

Virginia Oaks homes are always are a great find for any buyer in the market.  A mix of townhouses, and small and large single family homes make this a great community for anyone looking to move to Gainesville, VA.  The Virginia Oaks golf course that winds it's way through the community provides pristine landscaping and recreation. This Virginia Oaks home was purhcased by home buyers that found me through my blog.  They only had to make a couple trips out before they found the home of their dreams.  You can't really see the front their new Virginia Oaks home in this picture due to the mature  trees (which they will soon be trimming to reveal more of their gorgeous Virginia Oaks home), but it is a classic colonial style home. While Virginia Oaks homes benefit from the community swimming p...
